Aura Paint by Benjamin Moore is User Friendly

Home Stager with Twiques: The Art of Home Comfort

Just an update on the new paint by Benjamin Moore, Aura.  I recently painted my office with the new Aura paint.  It is self priming and covers well. I did notice a few spots that needed touching up after it had dried,but am not sure if it was the paint, or my hesitancy to roll the paint out too much for fear of it causing a problem.  One thing that was emphasized to me was that you could not overwork the paint or you would have problems.  I would use this paint again, however, as the final finish is lovely and the paint reasonably easy to work with.  You do have to be cautious if you are keeping paint in your tray that you keep a damp paper towel over the tray and the roller/brushes to prevent it drying out on you.

I wanted to make you aware of untill now if someone wanted to sample a color they would have to either buy a quart or choose from limited color choices available in jars or pouches. MyPerfectColor invented a pint size can for any color and you can browse all the colors on the web.  They also can make any color from  any brand using Benjamin Moore paints. They ship all samples to your door fast. when you get a chance please check them out.   all this for about half the price of any store.

Canada must be bigger into Benjamin Moore.  We are mostly Sherwin Williams around here.  Guess it depends on what part of the country  you are in, but BM has some really pretty colors.

The Aura Video Station at
It is a wonderful device.I recommend using an Aura Camera, which is specifically designed for displaying aura and printing aura photos via a computer interface.

Aura Cameras are used to give individuals a visual representation their bio energetic state. Based on such biofeedback technologies and Galvanic Skin Response and Skin Temperature, Aura Cameras can measure these physiological inputs and then convert this information into digital displays through a computer interface. The resulting display is typically a depiction of what is traditionally known as the human aura and chakra.

Some aura photography machines run in real time, giving the participant the ability to see changes from one moment to another. Others take still Polaroid pictures and do not run through a computer interface. The advantage of a real time aura system is having the capability to display the effects of products or services rendered during the session.

Another aspect of aura imaging systems is their ability to print extensive reports for given sessions. Please note only aura cameras that interface with a computer are able to accomplish this feature. The printing of reports can be a simple postcard size photo cards to multiple page documents detailing numerous bio data information.
